"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. ~ John 14:27"

Letting Him Lead



Ever since we rededicated our lives to the Lord, I’ve been waiting on my husband to lead us, waiting on our marriage to evolve. So many times I have prayed about my husband “stepping up” and being the leader of our home. I’ve prayed that God would show me what I need to do to be a better wife and be what He and my husband want.
I guess for so long I only thought I was submitting. I was submitting, but I was still complaining about it, so my heart really wasn’t submitted.  I still deterred everything he did or said because it wasn’t what I would do.
You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. ~ Matthew 12:34
